Please see important information below regarding compatibility of HDBaseT receivers with the Opus Series.
The Atlona AT-OPUS-46M, AT-OPUS-68M, and AT-OPUS-810M are part of the Opus™ Series of HDMI to HDBaseT matrix switchers for high dynamic range (HDR) formats. Part of the comprehensive family of Atlona 4K HDR integration products, these 4×6, 6×8, and 8×10 matrix switchers are HDCP 2.2 compliant and support 4K/UHD video @ 60 Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling, as well as HDMI data rates up to 18 Gbps. The Opus Series enables flexible routing to HDBaseT outputs plus two additional HDMI outputs, and is compatible with the Atlona AT-OPUS-RX receiver or AT-JUNO-451-HDBT switcher for transmission of HDMI, Ethernet pass-through, and bidirectional IR and RS-232 control signals up to 330 feet (100 meters) over CAT6a/7 cable. Visually lossless VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) enables HDR and 4K/60 4:4:4 signal extension over HDBaseT with no latency. Opus matrix switchers are equipped with a comprehensive host of audio and control system integration features, making them ideal for a wide range of residential and commercial applications requiring multi-zone AV distribution.
Advanced AV Signal Distribution and Integrator-Friendly Features
All HDBaseT outputs remotely power OPUS-RX receivers via Power over Ethernet (PoE). These matrix switchers are equipped with a flexible, independent audio matrix switcher for routing de-embedded HDMI input audio, TOSLINK and analog stereo audio sources, plus return audio from a television via the AT-OPUS-RX receiver – to parallel TOSLINK digital and analog audio outputs. Flexible control capability is provided by the supplied IR remote, front panel control, and GUI-based integrated web server, as well as IR integration between locally connected sources, remote displays over HDBaseT, and a control system. Opus Series matrix switchers feature a 2U enclosure with ultra-quiet, active cooling to ensure continuous reliability.
- Residential installations – The Opus Series is ideal as the AV distribution centerpiece for whole-house video and audio, with flexible options for integrating with audio and control systems.
- Commercial applications – Opus Series matrix switchers are also ideal for a variety of light commercial, education, and corporate applications requiring compatibility with new and forthcoming devices for 4K presentations.
